Tuesday Pirate Show for Kids

During spring, summer and winter holidays, Garza Blanca’s activities team create a fun Pirate Show for Kids on Tuesdays at 11:00am at the Main Pool.  Before the show, our activities team helps the kids dress up as pirates with eye patches and face paint, and learn about the art of balloon twisting as they make their own balloon swords.  During the show, they will play games and can participate to win prizes such as hats and swords. The show lasts approximately 50 minutes, and is followed by a treasure hunt. Through riddles, games and challenges, kids follow a treasure map to find hidden treasure around our Main Pool and beach areas. This fun activity will leave your children with fantastic memories of an unforgettable experience!

This year we partied it up to celebrate the independence of the United States at the main pool.  On the evening of July 4th, we received our guests in the main pool area facing the sea. There was a great turnout, with an influx of approximately 100 people. We offered a variety of salads, sandwiches and barbecue fare such as corn dogs, buffalo wings, french fries, onion rings and potato wedges. And of course the most important thing at a barbecue is the grill! Our expert barbecue chef, Refugio Silva, cooked up hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ ribs, chicken sandwiches, mixed skewers, sweet corn and beef brisket, providing all of the traditional delicacies of a true summer barbecue. Our pastry chef, Marcelo, manned the donut station, serving up these sweet, fried bits of doughy summer heaven.  Our bar manager Ivan Aguilar prepared a bar with welcome drinks, providing a special touch for this commemorative day.

Coolest Hotel Pool in the World

Hotel Mousai has one of the most spectacular rooftop views in the world, due to its unique position at the top of a tower perched upon a jungle mountaintop in coastal Mexico, overlooking the city of Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas.
